Hyperscale Data Center Expansion Goes into Hyperdrive

In addition to providing large amounts of space and power in these growing metro locations, our xScale data centers will also act as the cornerstones for our expanding cloud ecosystem of more than 2,950 cloud and IT service providers. Platform Equinix® features more than 40% of the private on-ramps to the top global cloud service providers—more than any other provider. This enables hyperscalers to interconnect securely with 10,000 businesses on Platform Equinix via Equinix Fabric™ software-defined interconnection, meeting the growing demand for hybrid multicloud architectures.

Hyperscale providers can benefit from our commitment to using 100% clean and renewable energy across the Equinix global platform, which has resulted in significant increases in renewable energy coverage globally. We’ve continued to make advancements in the way we design, build and operate our data centers with high energy-efficiency standards, and we are targeting to have all Equinix xScale data centers to be LEED certified (or the equivalent regional certification).

Equinix has been building out data center infrastructure for CSPs and their partner networks and customers for more than 20 years. This new investment in global expansion will bring even more value to our customers. And in recognition of the innovation that Equinix brings to the hyperscale industry, we received the 2021 Datacloud Global Award for the Data Center Provider of the Year by BroadGroup™ for our xScale data centers!

The joint venture projects in today’s announcement are expected to close in several waves over the course of 2021, pending regulatory approval and other closing conditions, under the same terms as the previous agreements. In addition to the facilities mentioned above, we expect to announce three additional sites at a future date.
